How to convert a Byte array to a double array???

hi people.

I have to acess a database, and there are some fields that
are binary. when i acess that field is read like an array
of bytes.

but in reality it's an array of doubles!!!

how can i convert from a byte array to a double array?

ps: in C this is SO easy

Try this out:

Dim test() As Byte = {23, 45, 78, 98, 101, 157, 158, 162, 178}

Dim dble(8) As Double

Array.Copy(test , dble, 9)

Also, if you want to change 8 bytes into a double you can you the
Bitcoverter class:

Dim j() As Byte = {2, 4, 78, 12, 99, 111, 45, 156}
Dim r As Double = BitConverter.To Double(j, 0)
Or , you can put this into a loop to covert a Byte array to double values.

Dim m as Integer = j.Length \ 8
Dim dble(m-1) as Double
Dim k as Integer = 0

For i = 0 to j.Length -1 Step 8

dble(k)= BitConverter.To Double(j, i)
k +=1

Hi there, I am trying to write a method that accepts an array of any primitive type and will return the same array without copying memory as an array of bytes. ie. I'd like to be able to do something like: char chars = "Hello!"; byte bytes = (byte) chars;

I was trying to determine the fastest way to build a byte array from components where the size of the individual components varied depending on the user's input. I tried three classes I built: (1) using redim arrays to add to a normal byte array (2) using an ArrayList and finally (3) using a memorystream. These three classes are listed below the test sub called "TestBuildByteArray". It was interesting that using the memorystream was...
